An Illinois 10-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a document used by a landlord to warn a tenant that they must vacate their rental unit due to a violation of their lease agreement. This notice provides the tenant with ten (10) days to pack up and move out of the property. If the tenant does not vacate the premises within the notice period, the landlord has the legal right to file for eviction. Illinois law does require that landlords give tenants an opportunity to cure the violation; the lease terminates upon delivery of the notice and the tenant must hand over possession of the rental unit.
